Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this wonderful set of 12 antique Imperial Russian solid silver spoons made by Pytor Pavlovich Milyukov in Moscow c.1890 (assay master B.C Victor Vasilyevich Savinsky).The spoons are presented in their fitted retailer box - a wonderful collectable set for presentation or practical usage. The layout and antique aesthetics of the original box make for an excellent display piece whether in a collection or on a fine table as part of interior decor. Each spoon features a classic Russian twist-design handle and an engraved bowl. Though the gilding has worn over the years, the parcel gilt bowls of the spoons are still apparent and present a lovely contrast between the gold and silver tone. Each spoon is fully hallmarked on the side of the stem. Due to the practical size of the spoons, they may be used as tea/coffee spoons or perhaps for some elegant small deserts - a wonderful way to enjoy a gathering with others and serve some coffee/sweets in the most elegant, historic and opulent manner.
*Please note this listing is for the spoon only and all other items are for display purposes only.

Good Condition - The spoons are all in good antique condition with no major issues. Due to age, the gilding has worn on the parcel gilt bowls, however, the contrast is still present and the gilding remains fine on the other side.
The case/box's push button clasp is slightly weak due to age - the lid will stay closed however, please do take care upon opening/closing.
We aim to overemphasize and state these issues to avoid disappointment and thus please rest assured they are not significant nor affect usage of the items.
Please refer to the photographs to examine the condition in further detail.
